Are you an e-commerce store owner who needs help reversing a refund on Shopify? It can be a tricky process to figure out, but it can be done! In this post, we’ll go over everything you need to know in order to reverse a refund on Shopify.
What is a Refund?
A refund is when a customer asks for their money back for a purchase they made. This could be for any number of reasons such as they changed their mind, the product didn’t meet their expectations, or any other reason. Refunds are a common occurrence when it comes to e-commerce and it’s important to know how to handle them properly.
How do I Reverse a Refund on Shopify?
Assuming that you haven’t sent the refund yet, the first step is to cancel the refund. Doing this will stop the refund from being processed and the customer’s payment will be returned to them. To do this, you will need to go to the Orders page in your Shopify Admin and select the order you’d like to cancel the refund for. Once you’ve clicked on the order, you should see a Refund button. Click this to open the refund details and then click the Cancel Refund button.
Next, you’ll need to issue the customer their purchase again. You can do this by going to the Orders page in your Shopify Admin and clicking the ‘Issue a New Purchase’ button for the order you want to reverse the refund on. This will open up a new window with the details of the purchase, including the line items and any discounts or taxes that were applied. Once you’ve filled in all the details, click the ‘Issue a New Purchase’ button.
If you’ve already sent the refund, unfortunately you won’t be able to reverse it. You’ll need to contact the customer and explain the situation and ask them to return the money to you. If they refuse, you may need to seek legal advice.
